I can’t thank this wonderful human being @valdrummergirl enough for all she’s done for me! I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I started taking lessons from you. It’s been a journey for sure! I can’t thank you enough Val for always being there to tell me I can do it! I constantly struggle with believing in myself, and through your constant encouragement I’ve truly begun to believe in my abilities. I honestly might of given up on my dreams if it weren’t for you! Thank you for telling me to sing everything I play! Thank you for telling me to record myself and listen back to everything I play! Thank you for always being there to listen to my problems! Thank you for always giving me constructive criticism! Thank you for being an awesome example of how to be a successful musician but still be kind to people. Thank you for always being on top of your teaching game! Lol 😂 I could go on all day but anyway... thank you Val for all you do for me. If it weren’t for you I wouldn’t have developed into the player and person I am today! You’ve really become like a big sister to me! Can’t wait to start taking lessons with you again in the fall! #valsepulveda #teacherval #femaledrummer #batarista #chile 🇨🇱 #vaterdrumsticks #switchtovater #dwdrums #trxcymbals
Playing some more @dennis_chambersdrums grooves! This ones from the drum intro to the @j_scofield1955 song “Pick Hits”. Got a great reference from an early studio recording of this song that I found on YouTube. Also thank you to @ferfuentesdrums for having a sick cover of this song on YouTube that also helped me out in learning some of these parts! Go check her page out she’s such a dope drummer! #dennischambers #zildjian #johnscofield #switchtovater #vaterdrumsticks #remopercussion #dwdrums #musicislife #jazz #funk #fusionmusic #mihollywood #drummer #percussion
Happy late birthday to @zacfarro one of my biggest inspirations and hero’s! You’ve really made drumming so much fun for me! I’ve spent countless hours listening back, breaking sticks and breaking down all the little detailed grooves and fills you’ve played over the four @paramore albums you’ve played on. This dudes playing is so solid and precise! From his punchy kick drum to his slamming back beat and his musicality. Zac is an awesome example of how any drummer looking to get into hard rock or pop punk should play! Thank you Zac for all the inspiration! Lol and sorry to all my drum instructors @mihollywood @valdrummergirl @gorden512 @albebonacci for all the times I playing too loud over jazz or Latin charts. 😂😂 it’s mainly cause of this dude! #zacfarro #hayleywilliams #tayloryork #joshfarro #halfnoise #paramore #poppunk #musicislife #hardrock #alternativerock #zildjian #musiciansinstitute #drummer #jazz #latin #valsepulveda #albebonacci #gordoncampbell

It’s crazy how far you go if you have the right mindset and apply the tools you have to hone your craft! I’ve been @mihollywood for over a year now and have gone from not knowing what a backbeat is to being able to play a track that switches styles and meters all in the same chart. A big thank you to everyone who has helped me grow as a drummer and a person!! It’s been a journey and I know there is still more learning and growing to be done. This little clip is from a video I did for a scholarship opportunity for the @percussivearts society. A big thanks to them for giving drummers such as myself an opportunity to save a little money on schooling! #vaterdrumsticks #switchtovater #dwdrums #musiciansinstitute #drummer #drumstudent #remopercussion #drumlife #percussivearts #percussion

Thank you to my instructors @mihollywood @valdrummergirl @stewartjean9 @freddinkins @jeff_bowders_ @albebonacci , and Tim McIntyre who told me that he was in town and for the discounted tickets, and for being an inspiration for me to grow as a drummer and person! #drummer #musician #musically #jazz #zildjian #druminspiration #drumming #inspiration #vaterdrumsticks #percussion #druminstructor
A big thanks to @natashaeinck_and @whitebuffalogalleryitebuffalogallery art for making this tattoo happen! She has done all my tattoos and I’m always blown away with her work. This tattoo has great meaning for me much like all of mine. #tattoo #tatt #tattooideas #drummer #musician

Search summer music video by CLLCTV. Link is also in my bio. A thanks to e everyone who worked hard to make this happen! A special thanks to @jainslopez who edited it and help us out filming as well!! #rockband #alternativerock #musicvideo #musically #band
Got some inspiration from @schianooo and decided to post a little clip of me playing ignorance by @paramore ! Lol I know I probably didn’t play it as kick ass as her cause she’s a badass. Go check her out!! But I think it sounds alright! I’m really working on developing my inner clock and concept of time and it’s definitely a work in progress. It’s very important to play to a metronome but it’s very important to get that internal clock going @valdrummergirl @mihollywood @zacfarro #paramore #drummer #music #zildjancymbals #vaterdrumsticks #remodrumheads #freddinkins #vans #poppunk #alternativerock #paramore #hayleywilliams #tayloryork #musiciansinstitute #gretchdrums #drummerboy #drummergirl
Little groove from the bridge from the song hard times by @paramore ! Kinda some linear stuff going on here! I realized watching back my right hand comes way to far off the high hat but it’s cool! Kinda more of a timing thing for me! Lol hopefully none of my instructors @musicians institute of Hollywood see this! #musiciansinstitute #groove #drummer #zacfarro #musician #jeffbowders #valsepulveda #stewartjean #albebonacci
13th anniversary of the first @paramore album, All we Know is Falling. Such a great album! Totally has that early 2000s alternative rock sound! With a lot of punch and edge! Such an underrated album! If you haven’t taken a listen you should!! #hayleywilliams #zacfarro #paramore #tayloryork #music
Playing some swung 16th notes! Not a very easy thing to do at first. It’s very easy for the swung 16th notes to become straight. Always gotta count those swung 16ths to keep a good swing feel and pocket. This groove is from the song ain’t it fun by one of my very favorite bands @paramore ! #musiciansinstitute #drummerlife #drummer #hollywood #groove #musician #hayleywilliams #ZacFarro #tayloryork #vaterdrumsticks #meinlpercussion
